A classic David v Goliath in the Capital One Cup as League two's Shrewsbury Town face the Premier League leaders at Greenhous Meadows in Shrewsbury. Micky Mallon the Shrewsbury manager couldnt have asked for a more glamourous tie than facing the Premier League leaders Chelsea at home. Mallon will try to get the balance right up front with one of Collins and Akpro likely to see the bench as teh home side go with a 4-5-1 to protect their back four. Akpro, Mangan and Collins have all notched four goals this term and are a main reason for Shrewsbury to be sitting in fourth in Division two. Shrewsbury have won four in a row but this is a giant step up and the question is can they compete with Chelsea's superstars?
Chelsea have a bit of an injury crisis but Mourhino is likely to start Andre Schurrle up front to get him game time and rest Didier Drogba ahead of the weekend's premier league game. Hazard and Oscar as also likely to be rested but Willian, Mikel, Salah and Zouma should all start. Jose Mourhino's side will be looking to get a straight forward win here as extra time would not be welcomed for the runaway league leaders who are coming into a very busy and tough part of their congested schedule.

Hard to see anything but a Chelsea win here, little value in that though and looking at the market there is not alot I like here. I am going to take over 1.5 first half goals as I think Chelsea come out start fast and look to get ahead early. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
